Ribbon Loop Topiary Tree

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: Cone (Rebekah used a 9” cone)
  • Satin ribbons, 1-1/2” wide in assorted patterns
  • Gold ribbon, ¼” wide x 6”
  • Straight pins
  • Small gold ornament or other tree topper
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Mod Podge (optional)
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; paintbrush (optional)

To make a Ribbon Loop Topiary Tree:

1. Cut ribbons into 4-1/2” lengths.

2. Fold a ribbon in half and starting at the bottom of cone, pin the ribbon loop in place. Repeat, adding a row of folded ribbons around the bottom of the cone. If needed, add a dab of glue to help hold the ribbon loops in place.

3. Pin on a second row, slightly overlapping the first row, and staggering the ribbons. Repeat, adding additional rows of ribbon loops till the cone is covered.

4. Glue a 1/4” gold ribbon around the top of the cone to hide the raw edges.

5. If you would like a glittered tree topper, brush Mod Podge onto the ornament and sprinkle with glitter. Let dry. Poke a small hole into the top of the cone with scissors. Insert and glue the ball to the top of the cone.

Control the Cords. Label both ends of every cord behind your entertainment center with a tag or sticker. Bundle up excess cord length with a rubber band or hook-and-loop ties.
Easy-access Discs. Set an attractive bowl (cereal-size works fine) on top of a DVD player and stereo. Place your CD and DVD favorites in the bowl.
Hide the Gaming System. Drill holes in the bottom of a storage ottoman and house a gaming system and all accessories inside. Run cords through the bottom of the ottoman and leave a few holes empty to allow for ventilation.
Label Chargers. Use permanent marker or stickers to label every charger you own. Store all chargers in one bath caddy with a handle.
